Trending: Trump Just Slapped Down A Democrat Senator So Hard He May Never Recover

Over four million people who voted for Democrat Andrew Gillum will be heartbroken.

Andrew Gillum, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Florida, conceded to his Republican opponent, former Rep. Ron DeSantis, on Saturday, ending a protracted fight that saw the Tallahassee mayor take back his Election Day concession during a statewide recount.

The concession ended Gillum’s first bid for statewide office in Florida, but the run — despite his loss — vaulted the 39-year old politician into the upper echelons of Democratic politics.

What Americans can glean from this race and many others during the 2018 midterm elections is that 2020 is going to wild, and probably just as close for many Republicans.

If President Trump is victorious two years from now, the margin of error will most likely be extremely tight.

Nelson’s and Gillum’s lawyers fought for a non-citizen’s vote to count.

Lawyers for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and U.S. Senate candidate Bill Nelson fought on Friday to allow a non-citizen’s vote to count in the state’s election races.

A transcript obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation of a Palm Beach County Canvassing Board proceeding revealed the exchange between the Democratic lawyers and the judge.

WATCH:

A judge says the county violated the constitution of the Sunshine State.

Gillum wanted to pay teachers a minimum salary of $50,000 and raise the minimum wage from $8.25 to $15.

He also intended to make college, essentially, free.

A new study shows taxes in Florida would spike to the tune of billions of dollars if Gillum’s policies are implemented – as one could expect.

From Free Beacon:

Progressive Democrat Andrew Gillum’s tax plan proposals “would adversely impact the business climate of the state” if he is elected governor, costing Florida 155,000 jobs and $28.2 billion in economic loses per year, according to the James Madison Institute (JMI), a Tallahassee-based conservative think-tank.

Conversely, JMI maintains, conservative Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis’ tax plan proposals, which include eliminating the state’s Business Rental Tax, would “lead to the creation of 215,000 jobs annually and $26.6 billion in annual economic output.”
